Deity Host's "Bi-Polar" In Brooklyn

by MIKEL MCCOY · June 27, 2008

DjDeity is a new club, and instead of the conspicuous lights, velvet ropes and burly bouncers of so many night spots, Deity's facade is more like a breath of gothic fresh air in downtown Brooklyn.

Open since February, Deity, which is actually housed in the shell of what used to be a house of worship, (ala Limelight) is finding its stride and putting on a weekly party called Bi-Polar.

Bi-Polar At DietyResident D.J., A Tribe Called Quest and Lucy Pearl's main music man, Ali Shaheed Muhammad, with the mad complimentary effects of D.J. Uncle Mike, keep the wheels of steel spinning and thumping and the young and sexy crowd grooving.

When I paid a visit I was happy to bob my head to the point of almost snapping my neck to many of the golden age of hip-hop classics that made my adolescent years so sweet. I don't usually get too star struck, but I had to tell Muhammad that his beats and rhymes about life made my maraud through the pitfalls of adolescence a little more like a love movement scenario.

Bi-polar happens every Thursday so get a hold and your crew, keep it moving to make your 8 million stories and ya'll can kick it for a bit of youthful expression at Deity.
